This past Friday, Fully Laced teamed up with Upper Deck to celebrate a partnership to provide Bay Area area collectors a chance at obtaining some amazing collectibles.
Upper Deck is a pioneer in trading cards and authentication. They hold exclusive rights to athlete signings such as Michael Jordan, LeBron James and Tiger Woods. With Fully Laced being a brand catered to the streetwear market and sneaker collectors alike, having their Flagship location set as home base in San Francisco made sense as the foundation of a building relationship.
The launch party kicked off with the first 100 people at the door receiving a free special edition Michael Jordan poster along with a 2014 Upper Deck calendar. There were more than 25 items on display throughout the store that were mainly dominated by MJ. Some of these memorabilia items include autographed basketballs, a framed Wings poster, a few sneakers such as a limited to 23 signed Air Jordan XIII, a game used floor piece from the 1987 Slam Dunk competition and even a coffee table made from a section of the United Center from the Chicago Bulls 72 win season. Nearing the conclusion of the event, they also raffled off a Mitchell & Ness Michael Jordan Bulls Rookie Jersey.
Fully Laced will soon have the entire Upper Deck memorabilia catalog available online (www.fullylaced.com), along with services to submit sneakers to get signed and authenticated with Upper Deck's 5-step process. Check out the rest of the photos below and if you would like to purchase any of these items now, please contact Fully Laced for more information.
